FAG Sliding Sleeve Housing replaces Sliding Base Housing

KCGM Pty Ltd. (Kalgoorlie Consolidated Gold Mines) has its headquarters


in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia. The company owns a number of gold mines,
including the Fimiston Open Pit (Super Pit) Mine and the Mt. Charlotte
Underground Mine. Challenge for Schaeffler:
The tube mills are exposed to adverse environmental conditions; high
temperatures during the day and low temperatures at night. A local company
had equipped the tube mill with a sliding base housing at the floating bearing
location. Bearings were failing on an annual basis; this always meant that
production was disrupted for several days at a time.
